GARCIA PEREZ, Reinaldo Pablo; NOLLA CAO, Nidia; RIVERA MICHELENA, Natacha  and  BRINGAS SOSA, Yenifer. Proposed teaching strategy of the Health Situation Analysis module in the comprehensive general medicine specialty for Venezuelan physicians. Educ Med Super [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.2, pp.216-229. ISSN 0864-2141.

A teaching strategy for the Health Situation Analysis (HSA), which stemmed from a previous research on the knowledge and skills acquired by the Venezuelan Comprehensive General Medicine residents in Trujillo state, was submitted in this paper. To this end, the review of the specialty curriculum and the HAS module, together with the administration of interviews to experts and the implementation of theoretical methods allowed contrasting the information collected with the drawing up of the strategy. The experts stated that the organizational forms of teaching and the time schedule were against the attainment of the objective, the linking of theory and practice was inadequate, and the evaluation systems had failures. The end product presented here is a methodological strategy supported on the use of several organizational forms of teaching, on a teaching task system and on a set of changes in the evaluation system.

Keywords : teaching strategy; health analysis situation; post-graduate module; comprehensive general medicine.
